So I have ventured into the world of ShrinkyDink Cellphone charms. To expand my amount of items I can offer to congoers.
I chose charms because:
a.) I like cell phone charms (I have a ton on my phone)
b.) I can use the pictures for all sorts of things - pins, badges, etc!
c.) Depending on what I make I could make charms of various sizes for other things! I like using stuff in multiple ways.
Here's the finished (test) product:
|It's Tear from Tales of the Abyss!
Not too bad, I must say for my very first try. Yes, I did actually draw the picture too. Found some inkjet printing ShrinkyDink paper, which was weird to work with - I'll have a tutorial later? Maybe? Is anybody interested in this process?
Each piece is also covered in a clear coat of spray lacquer so they should in theory be waterproof. Testing comes tonight! Mwahahaha. Poor Tear.
Since it seemed to work, I definitely want to make more. I am clearly making the Tales of the Abyss cast - but are there any other characters/series that people would want to see? Just let me know!
